One man, four women, a lot of romance.

Belle Epoque is the irresistible story of Fernando, a handsome young Spanish Civil War deserter who befriends a free-thinking artist. Fernando finds himself in a romantic dilemma when the artist's four beautiful daughters return to their country home-which woman should he romance? The answer is hilariously simple, as Fernando is seduced instead, by each of the high-spirited sisters. Belle Epoque is a rollicking sensual romp celebrating newfound sexual freedom for women. A delicious blend of humor and passion that captured the Oscar (1993) for Best Foreign Language Film and introduced the world to the enchanting beauty of Penelope Cruz (Vanilla Sky).
